2nd Saturday

Join us on Saturday, November 10, any time from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for a Local Author Fair!

This free fair is an exciting event for readers to explore new authors, talk with them, and peruse their books, which will be available for sale. It also provides a platform allowing local writers to showcase their work, connect with interested readers, and network with other area authors.

This year, the library is excited to feature author and public librarian Andrea Legg, whose writing has been featured on Scary Mommy and The Mighty. Legg has recently been named Librarian of the Year by the Ohio Library Council. Her experiences with sign language, the library, and her own family have resulted in a beautiful children’s book about accepting differences called Flap Your Wings, Little Robin.

Local author and genealogist Kathryn Hardgrove Popio used the actual letters of her ancestors as the centerpiece of her new book, Cross Keys, Carpet Bag and Pen. The book contains the straightforward accounts of how one of Stark County’s founding families, the Hardgroves, lived through the heartaches and hardships of the Civil War.

Authors besides Legg and Popio include:
Don Ake
Jane Biehl, PhD
Liza Brown
Jen Bublycz
Glenn Dettman
Roger Gordon
Etta Henry
S.T. Hoover
Duane Miller
David Lee Morgan, Jr.
Cat Russell

The authors’ books will be available for purchase during the event.

No registration required. For more information, contact the library at 330-832-9831.
